My room looks out to the wide open spaces
My heart is touched by awakening faces
I see the panic of people in motion
I can stand here, look out on an ocean.
I am a wall awaiting a catchword.
I see the city laid out like a patchwork.
Alone I am free from hatred and blindness
I hope that this life is frozen and timeless.
My man is here, we grow old by inches.
Tomorrow I'll walk among heroes and princes.
I feed the boys, I hear secrets whispered.
I know the hearts that are battered and blistered.
I am secure
In this world of apartheid.
This is my cell, but it's connected to star - light
